ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Rochester Public Utilities cleaned up a water main break off 18th Avenue and 48th Street NW.

Water was seen shooting up from 48th Street NW around 11 p.m. Tuesday.

RPU turned off the water to fix the leak. Those living just south of 48th Street were impacted by the shut-off.

Crews on the scene said the water main would take a few hours to repair.

A backhoe was at the location working to fix the problem, so if you were awoken by loud machinery early Wednesday morning, this is what was going on.

The intersection was briefly blocked off as they worked to mend the break.
